Do I own the land?

Full details are available from the Holiday Home Sales office. We also offer optional services at an additional cost, such as preparing your holiday home for winter.

Do I have to change my lodge holiday home every 5 or 10 years?

No, not at all. Unlike many other operators, our owners can enjoy their lodge holiday home for as long as they like, providing the lodge holiday home is safe and well maintained. The initial licence period for the occupation of a pitch on the park is 12 years. Once the agreement period has expired, you may either arrange for the lodge holiday home to be removed from the park or you may enter into a fresh agreement to site the lodge holiday home on the park for a further term.

What security is provided?

We operate security surveillance and patrols around the park 24 hours a day. Our security team at the main entrance are well trained not to let youngsters out on their own or anyone in without a valid security pass. We also operate a security alarm system for owners to protect their lodge holiday home, which is available at an additional annual cost.

Can we bring our dog?

Dogs are welcome at Far Grange although we reserve the right to refuse certain breeds.

What happens if I want to leave the park?

If in the event you no longer wish to be an owner with us, there are three options available to you to sell. Firstly, the park reserves the right of first refusal of the offer price. If you decide not to accept our offer you can then either sell to a third party buyer looking to purchase on the park or sell to a trader. Alternatively, you can make a gift of the lodge holiday home to a proven family member if you wish. Additional costs to consider include a disconnection charge from your pitch and if you have a veranda there will be a cost to dismantle it. Costs will be available from your Owner Services team.
